Bluetooth v4.2 + NFC

NEW: Upgrade firmware from your host microcontroller!

Get started in minutes with the DVK-BL652 Quick Start Guide!

Laird’s BL652 contains the latest generation silicon with Bluetooth Smart v4.2 capabilities and groundbreaking ultra-low power performance. Building on the expertise of the BL600 Series, the BL652’s smaller form factor, class-leading Nordic nRF52 silicon, optimized low power schemes and smartBASIC programming language provide a secure, stable, hostless Bluetooth environment. The BL652 introduces Bluetooth v4.2 and NFC, bringing industrial security and feature expansion to Laird’s proven Bluetooth Low Energy modules. In addition, the BL652 contains Bluetooth 5 ready hardware, pending the release of the Bluetooth 5 specification. Let Laird’s innovative BL652 series and decades of expertise in Bluetooth module design speed your product to market.

  • Bluetooth v4.2 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) plus NFC
  • Widest range of configurable interfaces: UART, I2C, SPI, ADC, GPIO, PWM, FREQ, and NFC
  • Industrial Temp Rating (-40 to +85 C)
  • Ultra-Small footprint (14mm x 10mm x 2.1mm)
  • BLE Peripheral/Central roles with DTM embedded
  • Major security upgrades: AES-128, Diffie-Hellman pairing, link layer privacy
